At this time, NYCRUNS has rescheduled our NYCRUNS Queens Half Marathon & 5K for 11/21/20. The event scheduled for 4/4/20 has been converted to a virtual Queens Half Marathon & 5K. If you were registered for the event on 4/4/20, you should have received an email outlining your options in lieu of the cancellation.
Unfortunately, this is one of many events that have been rescheduled or cancelled recently as the world responds to COVID-19. Our hearts go out to all of you that were planning on running our event, the NYRR NYC Half, and others. We know how disappointing it is to have something like this happen, but these circumstances are, of course, unprecedented. Like all of you, we’re closely monitoring the dynamic situation.
Like many of you, we’re concerned about our future events, races you’re training for or plan to train for. It’s possible some of them will not happen. As such, we’ve decided to amend our industry standard no-refunds policy in the best interest of our runners — and to provide you with some additional assurance.
While we still won’t be able to issue blanket refunds, we can assure you that your race entry will be honored. If NYCRUNS is forced to cancel a race due to Covid-19 concerns, you will automatically be entered into the same event next year, unless the race is rescheduled. In the unlikely event a race is rescheduled, you will automatically be entered into the rescheduled event. You may also be given the option of switching to a virtual race.
We hope this will put a majority of you at ease; however, we also have an existing option, which provides additional flexibility: NYCRUNS membership program. Membership costs $50 annually and provides several relevant benefits including deferrals and cancellation insurance. In the event you defer a race or we cancel one, you get the full amount of your registration credited to your account in the form of race credit. Race credit is good for any NYCRUNS race and lasts for one year. Membership comes with additional benefits including discounts on races. Learn more here.
Either way, I hope you know we have your back, and we will Win This Race together.
